A great meal at a reasonable price. Nice atmosphere and wait staff. The sour kraut was the best we ever had, will go back on future trips

This place is quite small and very cozy and charming: a bit of Mitteleuropa transported t North America. The food we had was excellent of its kind: stuffed herring with sour cream; kielbasa sausage with sauerkraut; blood sausage with fried onions; pierogies, and two shared desserts. Everything was extremely tasty. The service is knowledgeable and friendly. There was no canned... More

Decided to try this wonderfully located restaurant. It's right next to Vieux Montreal! Understated on the outside, it's easy to miss. The atmosphere was very warm and friendly. We had the borsch (so so), perogi (cheese and potato, very good), tripe soup (excellent), filet of sole and chicken livers. Topped off with a nice Canadian beer! It was a challenge... More

A quite delightful atmosphere from the greeting of live piano at the entrance ( yes he does play at least some Chopin!) to the warm hostess welcome and table ready as reserved. A very complete menu with all of the usual Polish treats and some sampler meals for those new to these tastes. The flaki was great the bigos well... More

This was easily the best place we ate during our time in Canada. The place is a little small but this adds to the ambiance. As we sat at our table a man played piano. My girlfriend is vegetarian and sometimes we can struggle to find really good vegetarian food but this place had plenty of choice.

Fit for a Polish princess or prince. Actually for anyone...!!! Simple food made elegant. The perogies and golabki (cabbage rolls) were both familiar yet inspired choices to exemplify this concept. Delicious. Washed down with a Polish cocktail flavoured with a black currant liqueur. Also delicious. Service was good for a busy Saturday. Good value. This is a great street to... More

The day we visited, there was a delicious brunch menu on offer, and it was definitely lucky that we arrived in time to order from it. The potato pancakes were flavourful, the sausage was hot, and the mustard added something that made it complete. Our server was attentive and understanding, as we were in a bit of a hurry, and...

Some of the best Polish cuisine I've ever had--second only to my father's! Great vibe, clean, great service, friendly staff, nice location, and best of all the food. Not much else to say but of course I will. Nice take on drinks. You'll find a Bloody Polak instead of a Bloody Mary and the Black Bison (with buffalo grass vodka... More

Called ahead (speaking Polish) to plan a special meal - That was a waste of time. I wanted to set up the menu in advance to the avoid confusion of people trying to order foods they weren't familiar with. The Manager told me that they don't do that. Rather there were some "sampler dishes" on the menu and I should... More

Stash Café is ideally located in Montreal Old port, the atmosphere is very intimate and we loved it. The pianist playing is adding a great value to the overall service! As per the food, you won't be disappointed: it's both delicious and well balanced. All dishes came in a quality and quantity which will suit anyone. Went there 3 times... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
